Re: Help with fixing a rubber dome board (Probably the controller)

Not sure how i would be able to test this theory though without bypassing the connection entirely with a wire. As a first attempt, you could just reflow the solder attached to that pin, in case it's just a flaky/marginal connection. Could try. Don't have access to a heat gun right now though, and i...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Any idea about this thing? (Digital PCXAL-MA) According to the FCC ID it was made by Keytronic in 1996, but it doesn't look like any Keytronic i've come across. (If anything it looks more like a derivative of the DEC LK401. https://img.tradera.net/images/818/298525818_b7ac9852-4ec5-46d3-8756-0d87f3f...

IBM M4-1/spacesaver II cables

Found myself an m4-1 some time ago, but it came without cables.

An SDL from an model m seems to work fine for the keyboard, but what do i need to get the trackpoint working as well? connect the mini din or rj45 it also has?
